Hawk Moth Records presents the long awaited launch of "Songs of Written Leaves" the debut album from Melbourne lo-fi/psych/folk outfit Empire of Poets at The Gasometer Hotel on Friday the 1st August.
18 months in the making, “Songs of Written Leaves” is an intimate yet epic piece with references spanning decades. Think Sparklehorse, Flaming Lips, Pink Floyd but also Sonic Youth, Elliott Smith, Neil Young and none of the above. A rare and unique sound that both embraces the lo-fi spirit of its creators while serving as a statement of intent for things to come.
Supports on the night from alt-denim country rockers The Scouts and the deep, dark song stylings of Waywardbreed. Afters, JJ "Bandcamp Hunter" Baker on the vinyl to swallow the night... $10 on the door. Good times all round.
